Also for B

Two actions stated, and clearly one action (dicovering his vocation) precedes another (becoming a professional revolutionary). Hence the past perfect tense.

Agree with B.

C - "once his vocation was discovered" - by who ?

My choice is B.

about Paine is is more appropriate than "was".

"has" indicates that the sentence is in the present perfect tense, therefore "is" should be used to denote the present tense. This narrows our choices to B and C. C is wrong, because "his vocation was dicovered" is grammatically wrong. Thus B
